I’ve been told by friends that the invisible fence has worked well for their dogs. They’ve told me that Captain Jack would be easily trained for it and I should consider it. I don’t think so.
Captain Jack understands the adventures and excitement waiting beyond the invisible fence. He also knows that the pain inflicted by the shock of electricity is brief and temporary. I have no doubt that Jack would figure out very quickly that a mad dash to break through would sting for a few seconds and rush of adrenalin soon take over as he sprinted “unleashed” to the world.
We should emulate dogs more…
We humans are really adept at building imaginary fences in our lives that keep us trapped in our yard. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, past experience, anxiety over the future, and a dozen other things make up the links to the chains that frame our invisible fences. We soon become very comfortable and secure never venturing outside our yards. This results in never maximizing our talents and leaving money on the table at the end of our lives. Dogs intend to leave this world penniless.
The invisible fences in our lives can also cause pain, yet like those crafted for dogs, the pain is brief and temporary. Your reward lays waiting out there, Are you ready to be unleashed!
